THE ART OF GOING SLOW
Are you feeling stressed or anxious? Do you feel like you are rushing around all the time, and even if you want to, you can’t quite relax? Do you have sensations of discomfort in your body and long for more ease, energy and vitality?? Come and join us for "The Art of going Slow" - Somatic Integration workshop with Clare Luiten...
In this world, much has become fast, and is geared for productivity. Yet our human physiology, and spirit doesn't cope well with going at a frantic pace all the time. Slow time heals, is creative, it creates connections, honours physiological processes, and just feels really good.
Within this practical, body oriented workshop you will learn a series of slow,easy to remember movements that gently unwind both body and mind. They have been developed and refined over years and work to support injury prevention and recovery, and nervous system regulation.
Slow deliberate interoceptive movements allow change to occur at deep levels of your system,easing the sore back, hip, or mind, and allow a deeper relationship with your
You will be working slowly and gently on the floor, and I recommend bringing your own favourite blanket, and perhaps a pillow to work with.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, Pilates Certified and Somatic Integration Practitioner.
I have a 22 year history of working with movement wellness. Having played extensive sport, and danced professionally I experienced injuries and ongoing pain. This inspired the journey towards finding solutions to remain pain free, strong and vibrant. Part of that journey was also about fronting up to childhood traumas, which led me to Craniosacral Therapy.
It is a wonderful experience to be able to pull out or loosen the ‘rocks in the way’ as it were and let the river of life flow freely again both in my body, and with those people whom I have the privilege to work with.
As a parent, my practices help me remain resilient, and most of the time playful. I particularly enjoy resourcing parents. Parenting can challenge our nervous systems significantly, and being resourced to do the best job you can is a huge contribution to society.
Originally I trained as a ballet and contemporary dancer and the rigour of such training has had a huge impact on my life. It has been a blessing which has allowed me the opportunity to grow a depth of embodied understanding of movement potential. Sharing this with
people and seeing them ‘light up’ or connect to a deeper sense of self is what keeps me sharing this work.
I am inspired to age with grace, and wish that for everyone.
